water towers


I know where this is
 I know where this is
 took
 it on Saturday
 as I walked up
 Lexington Avenue
 from 79th to 84th Street
 for 
my 
yearly
 breast 
squoosh
 aka 
mammogram 

if you haven't had this 
very 
necessary
 preventative 
exam 
done 
recently 
go set up an appointment
 now

 if you don't believe me
 as to its importance, 
go ask my friend
her mammo last year 
caught early stage cancer and got it gone!

anyway

I was early so I decided to get a cup o'joe

surprise

I left the apartment without my wallet
'cept
I wasn't sure about 
that 
til 
phoned 
(how is it I had my phone but not my wallet?)
home

Toonman confirmed it was there

phew!

so no coffee

well 
with time to kill 
what else would I do? 
take some photos
of course

Mammograms are important. Glad you're keeping up on this.

Mammograms on Saturday? We are forced to take off work around here, not that I'd especially relish doing such a thing on a weekend, but still it's nice to have options.

Glad you found the wallet!

Excellent PSA. I love that this tower seems to be playing peek-a-boo.

I need to make an appointment myself, thanks for the reminder! I love your water tower photos. They remind me of looking out my bedroom window when I was growing up.

Calling to schedule mine today! Soon there will be digital wallets on cell phones and that's all you will need.

Right on about the mammogram. I had another type of cancer, but caught it early....and I keep checking.

faye said...

smoosh ... they certainly do.

I sometimes wander out and about
and then realize no wallet ..
but forget my camera ....NO WAY.

I love the rust on the tower
and I really love the way you framed it with the trees and the wonderful old brick buildings

Barbara said...

Amen to getting the yearly squoosh - and also to killing time taking photos!

I never miss my squish, but I sure wish I could do it on a Saturday here.
Love your water tower!

One word for you Daryl-Incipio (as in phone case) I carry my driver's license and debit card in the little carrier on the back and since I seem to NEVER forget my phone it's always with me! OR with Iphone's new OIS 6 update we now have passbook (which i've yet to get "into") but starbucks app can pay for your cup 'o Joe without a card!)
That being said-glad you got the "sqoosh" SO VERY IMPORTANT.

Time well spent. Love your header.

I don't think I have ever missed an annual mammogram since having my first child...I know way too many women who have had breast cancer. I admire you encouraging it on your blog:)

Preventive medicine is very important.

I captured another water tower today. Not a building top one but at Frank Phillip's (of Phillips Petroleum fame) up in Osage County. I'm saving them up.
